“Why the shootings mean that we must support my politics.”

Mentally replace every appearance of the word “bombing” with the word “shooting” in this essay:

Many people will use this terrible tragedy as an excuse to put through a political agenda other than my own. This tawdry abuse of human suffering for political gain sickens me to the core of my being. Those people who have different political views from me ought to be ashamed of themselves for thinking of cheap partisan point-scoring at a time like this.

  1. A spoof piece on ESR’s writings…now related to the VT shooting. Almost surreal, given recent events at my alma mater and the fact that I’ve gone target-shooting with ESR.
